Unusual BIOS error affecting keyboard functionality

I have an usual error that is correct by reflashing BIOS. Every two weeks multiple keyboard keys stop working: e.g., capslock, ctrl, F7 and about 10 more. I accidentally discovered, after HP requested that the BIOS needed updating, the keyboard came back after the BIOS was flashed--all keys worked again. This has now happened 3 times and reflashing the bios fixes the problem for two weeks--I can almost set by calendar by the return of this malfunction.  Any ideas. Thanks!

    If the issue has been reoccurring this often, I'd be willing to bet it's likely hardware related. Did you try anything from a software standpoint? Reinstalling your operating system or anything along those lines?

    Have you tried any keyboard driver uninstallations/installs?  Have you also tried plugging another keyboard into the laptop and seeing if the issue happens with the external keyboard?
